    The entire city is there for you to explore. Excellent public transit system, light rail to downtown. Steps away from the cultural scene in a happening place like Houston.

    Rice is situated in the museum district of Houston. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, once again, you are in the midst of one of America's largest cities.

    Sometimes, it is difficult to get off campus, but Rice offers a lot of activity on campus. There are parties almost every weekend, the club and IM sports are very fun and welcoming, and the campus offers study breaks that include ziplines, pool parties, and petting zoos with kangaroos. Also, it's a small school, so a close friend is never too far away.

    There tons of clubs and activities on campus. Also, being in downtown Houston has its perks because nearby are numerous restaurants, museums, the Houston Zoo, Hermann Park, and other places to explore right across the street. To make it even better, Rice students usually get a discount at certain places or free admission to museums or the zoo. One of Rice's Program Councils also provides free tickets to the Houston Ballet, Symphony, Opera, and other events throughout the semester. If you have a car, then you can go with a group of friends to the Galleria (the mall), Chinatown to try new foods, or to the movies. There is so much to do that you will never feel bored here.

    Parties every weekend and the best part is that they're all inclusive. No one will judge you for what you want to wear, whether you drink or not, etc. Very welcoming and inclusive environment.

    It's stationed in downtown Houston. A dull moment at this university is virtually impossible.

    Rice is right next to the Houston light rail, so getting downtown is pretty easy and straightforward. There are also always lots of on-campus events going on through the various clubs and organizations active on campus.
